After some trail-inspired experimentation and subsequent absence from the market, it appears that Pharrell and adidas are ready to reintroduce the original model of the NMD Hu, complete with its flat rubber sole unit. The long-awaited return to form has been previewed in many forms of late, including the just-dropped “Extra Eye” Pack, and follow-up regional-exclusive options. Now adidas will look to drip-feed the drops of eight solid color options (all colorways previewed earlier here) — starting next week with the release of three colorways, including this awesome aqua option.
Consistent with the collection, the pair features a solid color woven upper atop tonal BOOST sole units, color-match caging, inserts, and laces — all tinted here in a vibrant shade of aqua blue. It’s joined by black liners, trail-inspired laces, and signature forefoot embroidery, the latter reading “Human Race” in Tamil.
Pairs of the Pharrell x adidas NMD Hu “Aqua” will arrive in Europe on April 24th, and in the US on May 14th with pairs listed at $220 a pop. Stay tuned for a full store/raffle guide for the drop. Until then, you can enjoy an official look at the pair here below, and as always, keep your eyes glued to our official Twitter account for further updates.
